Limited Edition Booths Ales

Written on July 3rd, 2014

For a limited time only, some of the finest breweries in the North West are producing artisan, craft beers exclusively for Booths. Our four new limited edition ales have been specially brewed by four breweries operating within each of our counties specially for our beer and cider festival.

Booths Golden Ale by Tatton Brewery is a biscuit coloured golden ale, with a pronounced aroma that is lightly resinous, citrus with hints of spice and exotic fruit. Tatton Brewery uses Cheshire yeast to give their beers a distinctive character and brew using traditional techniques in a modern brew house in Knutsford, Cheshire.

Booths Black IPA by Hawkshead Brewery is dark in colour but surprisingly light and refreshing on the palate, with aromas of tropical fruit and resinous pine. Hawkshead Brewery has been brewing traditional beers with a modern twist in Cumbria since 2002.

Booths Summer Ale by Ilkley Brewery is a light, refreshing golden ale with intense aromas of peach, mango and passion fruit with a hint of citrus and a rounded dry finish.  Ilkley Brewery is fairly new, established in the Yorkshire town in 2008, they constantly innovate and develop their ales from grain to glass.

Booths Lemongrass Ale by Lancaster Brewery its subtle lemongrass citrus flavours delicately balanced with pale malt elements. Lancaster Brewery is one of the largest in the North West, all their beers are brewed with timeless ingredients and techniques by people that care.

Our beer buyer, John Gill, explains; “The rich brewing heritage in the North West means we are never far from an exceptional local pint; from the traditional brewing techniques of Tatton Brewery, to the modern twist on traditional brewing by Hawskhead Brewery. We’re so pleased to be working with these great local breweries to offer some fantastic new Booths beers to enjoy this summer”.

Anne Jones, Hawkshead Brewery, adds; “Booths value us as local suppliers. John Gill, the buyer, has brewed with us here at the brewery and joined in some sampling sessions. He’s interested in the people behind the beer and the brewery rather than just looking at it as a commodity.”

During the festival you will also find over 100 beers and ciders on promotion at 4 for £6 and in-store sampling events taking place with a range of 10 different beers being sampled each week. You can also request to try any of our beers or ciders before you buy.
